Rustic American Flag

A beautiful day on the deck just perfect for
a flag making girl...

Rustic boards screwed together to form a base...

A quick coat of white paint leaving the rustic 
sides of the wood exposed.

Using painters tape I sectioned off areas for my red stripes...

It's looking a little patriotic already!

The tape was removed to reveal the white stripes, 
then I painted a bright blue field.

I traced a large star that I cut out using my cutting machine
and painted it in with white.

Then gave the flag a coat of dark wax for a rustic look.

Have a Happy Fourth of July!

  1. I love that look! It came out perfect Susan! Happy 4th indeed. Pop on over when you have a chance; I'm having a giveaway.


  2. The 4th is coming isn't it? I'm skipping making a spring and summer wreath then, and just putting up last years 4th of July one. Procrastination paid off. I do however have a wood flag in need of some love, maybe you inspired me to also get that out and ready.


  3. Love it! I've made several, and one I've had on the fence for a year. :(

    I promise myself to take it down after the 4th this year. The good news is, it has help up well!
